    I know that. Actually I am a land use planner, although for a City not the county where vineyards are placed. Behind firefox, I am supposed to be looking/working on a map with a whole bunch of parcels on it!

    One could say any development is not good from an environmental perspective.

    Read this mindnumbing stuff at what land use plans actually do.

    This one is a little less mindnumbing.

    TG I don't work in the depths of CEQA.

    go, I have been lucky enough to be on the periphery of CEQA as well.

    As far as the stormwater issue goes, I used to do TMDLs (mercury and metals) for the Regional Water Board in Sacramento, so I'm at least familiar with some of the issues.

    I have not let my children eat fast food. I grow a little bit of veggies in my garden. And I eat at locally owned restaurants.

    But I did have a Costco frozen breaded fish yesterday.

    • it can be paired or had alone.
    • it has a screw top!
    • they are blowing the s*** out of them at Cost Plus for like $5 bucks!!!!

    Cool. I usually steer clear of whites when I grill, even if it's chicken or fish. Or at least I'll drink a bottle of white WHILE grilling and then switch to red with dinner. Another reason charcoal grills rule - more time to drink while the coals heat up!
